"Great Software for server backups!"

What do you like best?

I like the integration with VMware products. Its a really great product and is easy to use. We rarely experience failed backups. We are currently using Veeam Endpoint Backup to Backup around 300 virtual servers to a Dell EMC VNX 5600

What do you dislike?

We archive some backups to tape for long term storage. Integrating the tape library with Veeam was somewhat difficult due to some issues caused by drivers in Server 2012 R2. Veeam a

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't try to install it on Windows Server 2016 Core or any other version of Windows Server Core. You unfortunately must have the full graphical user interface of the server to install this software. Its unfortunate, as removing the graphical user interface tends to reduce the attack surface of the server. But, other than than, just read the documentation prior to installing and you'll do good!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Veeam serves the purpose of providing our company with server backups and disaster recovery. If any issue is encountered with a server that cannot be quickly fixed, we can use Veeam to restore the server to a previous point in time.

"Veeam - One of the best Backup softwares"

What do you like best?

Veeam is definitely one of the best backup soft wares available in the market. Compared to all other backup soft wares Veeam is feature rich and more reliable. Backups are done in no time and the process of recovering data is pretty easy. The installation and maintenance is pretty easy and the over all process is hassle free. The backup tasks run in parallel to same storage and backups complete in no time.

What do you dislike?

Not really so much to dislike about this product except for the Licensing cost. It is expensive compared to several other backup soft wares available in the market but trust me, it is worth the expenses though. One limitation with Veeam is, you cannot directly back up the servers to a network attached storage. We had some difficulties getting it work with a tape library but final the support is helpful enough to get it up and running

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely Recommended

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We back up daily several hundreds of servers which are kept on the attached storages and also maintain offsite backups with Veeam by sending the backups to tape library. We used to have several issues with old backup software we used to use and there support was awful. Their support engineers used to connect to our system but unable to figure out the issue. With Veeam we never had to contact support till date. I recommend this product to all enterprise level agencies. It is worth the cost.

"Veeam Endpoint Backup - Best Endpoint Backup Software Currently On The Market"

What do you like best?

it just works. Easy to use. Good tech support. Updates are easy to apply. User guide is good. I have no issues. Central management is also nice and well integrated.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. I used to use acronis endpoint and it was horrible. I had nothing but issues. After switching to veeam I have no endpoint backup issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Buy it. You will not be disappointed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are backing up critical endpoints that control infrastructure equipment. I now have the ability to recover files and do a bare metal restore. I also have the ability to do a quick backup before vendors apply software patches / updates which allows me to roll back in case of issues. The software has exceeded my expectations .

"Veeam backup for enterprise recovery saves time and money "

What do you like best?

Veeam provides off site backup without having to maintain a library of tapes and management thereof.

What do you dislike?

End user interface is not as intuitive as I wish it were so restores could be managed by network users.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Veeam provides a more encompassing D/R solution than other options.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Disaster recovery options by automatically replicating backups to off site locations leaves more time to concentrate on business processes rather than having to constantly manage a D/R solution.

"The finial piece of the puzzle, Veeam Endpoint closes the loop"

What do you like best?

Veeam Endpoint Backup is the product you've been waiting for. VEEAM's awesome products and technology, finally available for non-virtual systems. For years Veeam has been the best backup product around unquestionable, but it lacked a big piece of the entire backup ecosystem by being solely focused on virtualization. With endpoint backup, you can backup anything any time any where to your existing veeam infrastructure or to a cloud provider directly without anything onsite. Endpoint backup bridges the gap between virtual and physical servers, desktop PCs, AIX and other strange non-virtual endpoints you may have. Like all VEEAM software, it just works. There's even a free version that gets you 75% of the paid features.

What do you dislike?

Support for Windows systems older than 2008 R2 is not present, but you shouldn't be using them anyway.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There isn't much of anything better, VEEAM does it all and it does it right.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to backup all systems anywhere no matter what they are is critical to any business. VEEAM is the best of the best in backup

"Just like its daddy, Veeam B&R, it just works"

What do you like best?

Reliable backups. Little intervention. The agent is easy to install and you can be doing backups in a few minutes. Once it is set up, it virtually never fails. Easy to build BMR boot disk image.

What do you dislike?

The current version doesn't fully integrate with Veeam console. You get results, but cannot edit or control jobs from the B$R console.

"Veeam: A backup solution as familar as the back of your hand"

What do you like best?

What I like best about this backup solution is its intuitive user interface. The design only is simply self-documenting.

What do you dislike?

The only shortcoming with this software is the fact that it does not support as of this writing and to my knowledge some legacy systems such as the IBM i.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary benefit that this is solving is the need for DR backups for our lab build systems.

Restore can be a kind of a pain depending on the settings of the backup. Would be nice to have a few more file level restore options.

"Excellent Enterprise Solution for our Colocation!"

What do you like best?

Automated reporting for job completion or failure, easy setup of jobs, and Hyper-V integration make it a key solution for our data-center.

What do you dislike?

The pricing model can be a bit confusing at first and hold times for support are a little long, though not out of scope for a large company.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely take the time to set it all the way up and test it before letting it do it's thing. Worth the time to ensure a rock solid backup solution.
